MANAMA: Alba, the world’s largest aluminium smelter ex-China, has won the 2020 Gold Medal Health and Safety Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) for the seventh year in a row.

Internationally-renowned RoSPA honoured Alba for its health and safety performance during the period of January 1 to December 31, 2019.

Commenting, Alba’s chief executive Ali Al Baqali said: “Alba is pleased to be recognised with this international acclaim from RoSPA, which speaks volumes about our consistent and high performance in safety and health. I thank our employees and our contractors for their unwavering commitment to ‘Think Safety First and Always’ that has made this achievement possible.

“Alongside being the world’s largest smelter ex-China, we also want to be recognised as the world’s safest smelter and will constantly look to improve our safety practices as we evolve.”
